Anyone having issues with the rear arms breaking? Just broke another left one. Right at where the material is in front of the hinge pin...not on the hinge pin but next to it.

I have a question guys

I just upgraded my entire driveline to universals.

I am having clearance issues on the mid rear shaft. It's hitting the lipo strap

Any help or tips on what I need to do.

Thanks!

You can use a dremel drum sander and smooth it out length wise, or get the aluminum holder for the rear diff that has two places on it; that lifts the strap higher, or you can cut it in two pieces. I used the dremel approach.

I was using a 20 pinion, so I am going back to the 23, as it seems to provide a smoother transition. I also rebuilt the front end after the shock came apart, thank goodness I bought a parts car from a friend. I had to replace the shock shaft and a arm. She is back together again after the shock blowout.

I do have the aluminum hoop

It's still not clearing. Is this a common thing?

Note: My car is a 2010 Spec Car that has been upgraded all along the way.

Is it hitting near the hinge end? I'm guessing the type B battery strap will fix your issues
Type B

Are there any negatives to boiling these parts (e.g. arms, rear hubs)?

Apparently not as nylon absorbs moisture naturally anyway and as it does it becomes more flexible and less likely to break, boiling new parts just speeds up the process. If your car is old it probably won't need it but with my new v4 I broke things easily first drive and have recently had bigger crashes and no breakages after boiling everything, that includes bnip parts too

The aluminum loop/hoop has two settings, make sure you are using the higher one.

Double check to make sure ur diffs are in the right way. The screws heads should be facing the ground.
